    Nice!

    Has anyone heard of dog hair deterring deer from eating your bulbs, etc? I was told it works, but have no need to try it since I live in suburbia.

    Don't get me started on Monsanto. And yes, they do sue farmers, if they don't plant all of their seed or return it. And there's the ever popular soy bean that's resistant to weed killer. Yum.

    Wisconsin produces the most soy beans in the country. (Hello Kikoman) There's soy bean fields down the street and when the crop dusters come in I hide.

    P.S. Better than corn, cops can hide in the corn.

    Doubt it. My biggest struggle is with critters. At any one time I have 3 dogs and a cat that prowls. I'd shoot the bastages but I have a rule about that kind of thing. (mice, rats, coyotes and cockroaches are the exception)

    I guess I should have said people to.

    Wow nice Gardens Mkmk and Salty. I wish I had that much room in my back yard. Last year I started growing Jalapenos and pickling them. Super easy to grow and they take very little space. Most of the gardens I planted I was trying to attract deer not keep them away!

    Mine's not so pretty. If I had more time I'd like to spruce it up and show it off to the customers.

    We grow quite a few vegetables, namely cucumbers, onions, carrots, beets, green beans, hot peppers / chiles (around 10 varieties) and tomatoes. We planted some fruit trees 3 years ago and they are doing well! Got about half a bushel of apricots, a few buckets of figs and a couple of pears.

    I agree with those who have posted before, gardening keeps a person grounded.



    Vegetables and green tomatoes






    Figs






    Baby Carrots






    We even grow a few baby turtles / desert tortoises. Just kidding, they came with the place.......






    Saludes,

    Lots **** to rip out,but this was the first year.

    Before it was all covered in ****** buck thorn. Now to do more raised beds, but even dirt is expensive on a cooks salary.

    I have the 30x40 community garden across the street as well because the city forgot they have no water source, so I take care of it.

    After everything starts to die off I get a fall run of red mustard mizuna and spinach.
